Try ebay as I see quite a few from time to time with 2" lift (or so I think
it's a lift anyway)
Or alternatively try the aussie tlc websites as they prob have these too

Subject: [ELCO] tyres [ 80]
Hi Guys
I have been trying to find a picture of an 80 cruiser with a 2inch lift and
a 31 inch or 33 inch tyre on a 15 inch rim but can't. Would a 33 inch tyre
fit the 80 cruiser if it had a 2 inch lift or should I get my brain down to
earth and just look at the 31 inch tyres. I am still compiling info for all
the bits I want to do to the cruiser.
Thanks as usual

33" (285 right) will fit under a non lifted truck (as far as I remember) but
u won't be able to do any wheeling.
A 285 with a 2" lift is perfectt.

Thanks Lal and Dyfed
Im just looking to get what I can but I dont want to make a mistake. I just
caught me self thinking (wow) maybe ill get the lift first anf then see what
tyres fit and look well, problem solved, Ebay can be good but when I get
into the stuff for sale it usually says UK delivery only, so I give up after
a while. Now ill move on to the next think cruiser wise.

Wow they look serious mud monsters.
Are they as good as they look? Don't worry I'm not buying if someone is
bidding.

Our unlifted (for now) 93 has 33" BFG AT's, they fit just fine. Has not
been used in anger but contrived articulation tests have been ok. With a
2" lift you should be easy on and thinking about 35's with an occasional
rub :)
Best Regards,
Jon.

Hey Dyfed Thanks
Thanks for the link but as you see its always local pickup which is UK only
BAAAAAAAAAA.. Any way getting more info as is expected so bid away and its
good to hear that 33s fit, any chance of a photo to see what they look like
on the cruiser. Still window shopping in the UK so keep it a coming. I have
lost the cheap ferrys to the UK so will have to come up with another idea,
god more head work ill have a brain the size of a peanut instead of a pea,
think ill have to look at a site for reinforcing the spinal colum next. Any
way bed time had a nice french red and I do mean wine by the way. Think ill
do the same as I did today and take over the world, whats that from any
ideas guys.

Hi Clive
Thanks for the pics, looks like a perfect fit to me exactly what I want.
What size are the wheels ill bet they are not 15s. O who is the broud guy at
his cruiser. I am now havuing to rethink about every thing i want. I want
bigger tyres and new wheels but want to keep what I have. I definatly do not
want to pay the prices for the tyres or wheels over here so I will get them
in the UK. Its looking like we may be going landbridge to France for the
holidays, so I may get a chance to pick up a few things on the way back.
Problem 1 is where to dump the wife and kids so ill have more room to get
more stuff but I think they will all gang up on me so I can't do that. So Im
left with only the boot area for all the normal holiday stuff and what I can
get in wine, then (whats left) I can fill with goodies for the cruiser.
Thats why all the previous questions about roof racks and weights etc etc. I
can stick with the wheels on her at the moment and get the 33 inch tyres in
the UK, and then collect service stuff from Milner I think. If I want new
wheels and tyres id have to leave mine behnd which I do not want to do and I
can't take tham with me because ill have no room. All a muddle at the moment
but some how ill get it to work. But it does look like we will be going
through the UK all the way to Dover to get the ferry to France Anyway the
saga goes on trying to get what I want in the best way.

Looks you got yourself in a pickle.
Here's my plan
Go toFrance
Buy wine
Drink it all
Get dumped by wife who decides to go back home on her own.
Make her take old wheels with her as an act of revenge
Buy new wheels/tyres
Drive home
Job done! ;-)

John,
No they are not 15" wheels.
The guy standing by the cruiser in the pic I sent is my son.
These shots were from an ELCO day on Salisbury that we had a few
months ago.
Regards, Clive.

Are there any cheap EasyJet or Ryan Air flights you can put the wife
and kids on so they don't have to suffer the long journey back home;-)

Very good advice - I might even do that myself....buy and drink the
wine that is. I don't have to worry about the other stuff....and maybe
meet up along the way...
